Description

Traveling down this small stretch is extremely dangerous and I have whitnessed several accidents over the past few years. 1-Scenic Road traffic goes from one way to two way without indication, I have whitnessed many near head on colissions and cars hitting the curb. 2-This road is windy and on a steep incline and going down hill people pick up alot of speed. This is especially dangerous as there are blind curves when traveling both directions approaching the intersections of Madison and Midland road. As traffic pulls off these roads there are many accidents and near accidents. 3-This also goes for the train station enterance around the curve at the bottom of Scenic Rd. 4-Aside from that, the traffic traveling up the hill tends to speed and rev their engines on the incline. Then they reach the top of the hill and speed around the curve at Scenic Hills Elementary School. The childern stand no chance against a car speeding around a blind curve. 5-Finally there are several driveways on these curves and they are a nightmare to pull in and out of, one second it is clear, next there is a car barreling around the curve. More signs would only be "white noise". IF THE SPEED LIMIT WAS REDUCED THEN ALL THESE PROBLEMS COULD BE ALLEVIATED, AND PEOPLE WOULD HAVE MORE REACTION TIME FOR ALL THESE OBSTICLES ON THIS SMALL STRETCH OF ROAD. People should need to travel higher speeds through our backroads.
